Reverb 10 - December 6 – Make.
What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

As an accomplished creator of frenzy, I'd like to share my special recipe.
Use a 24 hour vessel.
Mix a cup of shoulda.
Add a dash of can't.
Pour in 2 coffee mugs too many.
Stir rapidly until a tornado forms at the center.
Transfer into a container that is too small.
Pour leftover mixture down the drain.
Put it in the oven and walk away.
Serve or discard- it doesn't really matter.
As my own scheduler, I can make mayhem of my days. Despite all of my recent reflections, I've been getting through them much like I'd guess a rat navigates a maze- head down, occasionally bumping into walls, drawn toward the promise of freedom at the end. I must focus my attention during each moment of my day and avoid simply working to return home. There is a little magic in every moment, but I'll never see it if I'm stuck in the frenzy.
